    Hi neeharika,

    I know this may sound basic have you given yourself access right via groups, are you are a member of, ie disk management , cdrom - DVD group access.

    Have you tried a different desktop, ie gnome to kde or kde to gnome.

    How many different audio players have you tried to install and use, ie real player, XMMS, Mplayer & Amarok, just for a few.

    Just another question can you down load wav or MP3 from the net and play them back?
    This would confirm your sound drivers are operational.

    I hope this is of help.
